Description
With the increasing severity of hospital evaluation by society (patients), the establishment of risk management for infection control at hospitals that respond to criticism becomes very important. At our hospital, under the supervision of the Infection Management Committee, the Infection Control Team (ICT) organized as a working group makes monthly ward/outpatient rounds, inspects the scenes of medical actions, and performs information, guidance, and educational activities.
The primary objective of infection prevention is avoidance of outbreaks. For this purpose, basic preventive measures against nosocomial infections, i.e., 1) hand washing, 2) strict observance of standard precautions, 3) grasping of the present state by surveillance, and 4) proper use of antibiotics, are important. The entire hospital organization must approach infection prevention by “putting concepts into action”. To achieve this, we, as an organization, must evaluate what environmental improvements are needed and how the medical staff should be instructed and trained. There is an urgent need for professional infection control doctors and nurses, and a system that allows them to function throughout the organization.
